This high-end fino from Tio Pepe is yeasty and shows a flor-related character. In addition, there are aromas of apple, toasted almond and turpentine. The palate is full for fino, with yeasty weight cut by acidity. Flavors of crisp, dry, salty almond and apple finish juicy, with a note of sautéed mushroom.
